Country Thunder is a country music festival and lifestyle brand that hosts several festivals each year. Country Thunder has come to be known to country music fans in North America as one of the main places to find live entertainment in an outdoor setting.[1] These festivals are usually located in traditional locations such as Florence, Arizona and Twin Lakes, Wisconsin in the United States, as well as some summer events in Canada.

Country Thunder has been known to attract people from all over North America, with many visitors from other parts of the world. In 2015 each U.S. festival attracted between 80,000–125,000 people throughout the four days.

Each festival offers entertainment on multiple stages. The main stage is the main attraction hosting both the biggest artists in country music and new upcoming talent, but other stages also offer upcoming artists as well as local artists. In the past, the festivals have hosted well-known artists like Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley and Eric Church.

Along with the live music stages, Country Thunder offers Electric Thunder, a late night electronic DJ'd dance party under a real circus tent. In 2015, themed parties were introduced each night including a throwback beach bash, neon rage, and a foam disco.

All ages are welcome to attend, but overall the average age of the attendants range from 22–32. Fans can join a fan club entitled CT Nation where they can share information and receive information early.

Frederick Dierks Bentley[2] (born November 20, 1975[1]) is an American singer and songwriter. In 2003, he signed to Capitol Nashville and released his self-titled debut album. Both it and its follow-up, 2005's Modern Day Drifter, are certified platinum in the United States. A third album, 2006's Long Trip Alone, is certified gold. It was followed in mid-2008 by a greatest hits package. His fourth album, Feel That Fire was released in February 2009. A bluegrass studio album, Up on the Ridge, was released on June 8, 2010, and then a sixth album, Home, followed in February 2012, as did a seventh one, Riser, in 2014. Bentley's eighth and latest album, entitled Black was released in May 2016.[3]

Bentley's studio albums have accounted for 25 singles on the Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts, of which 15 have reached number one: his debut single "What Was I Thinkin'", "Come a Little Closer", "Settle for a Slowdown", "Every Mile a Memory", "Free and Easy (Down the Road I Go)", "Feel That Fire", "Sideways", "Am I the Only One", "Home", "5-1-5-0", "I Hold On", "Drunk on a Plane", "Say You Do", "Somewhere on a Beach" and "Different for Girls". Four more of his singles have reached the top 5.


Blake Tollison Shelton (born June 18, 1976)[1] is an American singer, songwriter, and television personality. In 2001, he made his debut with the single "Austin". The lead-off single from his self-titled debut album, "Austin" spent five weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. The now Platinum-certified debut album also produced two more top 20 entries ("All Over Me" and "Ol' Red").[1] Although the album was released on Giant Records Nashville, he was transferred to Warner Bros. Records Nashville after Giant closed in late 2001.

His second and third albums, 2003's The Dreamer and 2004's Blake Shelton's Barn & Grill, are gold and platinum, respectively.[1] His fourth album, Pure BS (2007), was re-issued in 2008 with a cover of Michael Bublé's pop hit "Home" as one of the bonus tracks.[2] His fifth album, Startin' Fires was released in November 2008.[1] It was followed by the extended plays Hillbilly Bone and All About Tonight in 2010, and the albums Red River Blue in 2011,[3] Based on a True Story... in 2013, Bringing Back the Sunshine in 2014, and If I'm Honest in 2016. Overall, Blake Shelton has charted 32 country singles, including 23[4] number ones, 17 of which were consecutive. The 11th No. 1 ("Doin' What She Likes") broke "the record for the most consecutive No. 1 singles in the Country Airplay chart's 24-year history".[5] He is a seven-time Grammy Award nominee.

Shelton is also known for his role as a judge on the televised singing competitions Nashville Star, Clash of the Choirs, and The Voice. He has been on The Voice since its inception, and in five of eleven seasons (2–4, 7, 11), a member of his team has won. From 2011 to 2015, Shelton was married to fellow country singer Miranda Lambert.
